Saving lives

What it does

We took a service oriented approach. A Flask web app holds the neural network for detection, and is hosted on Google Cloud App Engine. It communicates with Client iOS app and 8Base, where business logic and predictions are handled. Detects malaria from phone photos in real time using a hand-made convolutional neural network.

Challenges we ran into

  • Putting a fully functioning ML model in production
  • Communicating images via client app and flask web app
  • Integration of 8Base backend with Swift

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Built a fully functioning application, deployed on the cloud which has real-world applications

What we learned

Implementing a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to solve a complex software design problem.

What's next for parasite.AI

Series A funding. If all else fails, we'll go into crypto with MalariaCoin.
